Sem Fronteiras Charity Org.

We are a charitable organization working with local and international volunteers in Africa to improve lives in poor communities.

Such an amazing impact, soul-fulfilling, satisfying and worthy of the sacrifices. We focus on childhood development and education as a pathway out of the cycle of poverty. We focus on feminine hygiene solutions and reproductive health education as a strategy to empower girls. We focus on empowering the youth and parents through support for agriculture and petty trade, with periodic free healthcare services, to make them capable of supporting the children’s welfare and education so we can wind up and move on to others.

We rely on volunteers, many from abroad, to run our intervention programs. You are welcome to volunteer in Africa with us.

This website is designed to offer a basic introduction to you and the different ways you can be a part of our causes as a volunteer or a donor. We invite every individual or representative of a group, organization or program that share our vision to talk to us about how we can team up. We develop initiatives to generate funding for our activities and volunteers’ expenses, but we are happy to welcome donations. “Nothing in life is more liberating than to fight for a cause larger than yourself, something that encompasses you but is not defined by your existence alone.” – US Senator John McCain of blessed memory.
Agriculture

Through this program, we assist farmers to adopt modern methods to boost yield, improve storage life and wholesomeness of the produce. We are providing microfinancing, farmland acquisition, farm tools, and market leads. Volunteers are placed in villages to manage finance and farm tools allocated to a group of farmers and also plant fruit trees in local schools.

Feminine hygiene

With this program, we make reusable feminine hygiene pads for very poor women, particularly girls in school, so they can go about their usual activities all times. Volunteers are taught to make these pads and we have sewing machines to do them. Volunteers educate the ladies on the female reproductive system and distribute the pads.

Reading and Literacy

With volunteers help, we create interest and curiosity in children to read and discuss chapters in a storybook, learn to author stories, and board games like scrabbles. This is also strategically planned to improve grammar, writing skills and knowledge on essential issues like dental care, cognitive challenges of the elderly and gender equality.

Microfinancing

We provide micro-financing to enable unemployed mothers to start small businesses and to farmers for farming to provide food for their families and improve livelihood. With volunteers help, we make sure the funds are well applied to what they are meant for, and beneficiaries succeed in their ventures, training them in records keeping, customer service.

Healthcare

In remote villages with no health facilities, health professionals and students volunteer with us to offer healthcare services like dental care, eye care, infected wound, skin infections, malaria, malnutrition, women’s health, and sexually transmitted diseases. And screening for others requiring management like Hypertension, Diabetics, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B.

Orphans and Needy children

To discourage bad practices, to the extent that some poor parents are lured to give away their children and passed off as orphans in orphanage institutions, we are encouraging many families to foster orphans and neglected children. We are doing this by providing the support to such families directly and we need the help of volunteers to make this work.

Volunteers get skillful engagements, broadened perspectives, improved problem-solving skills, adaptive skills, cultural immersion and fun time volunteering in Africa with us.

Adventure activities are included covering wildlife safari, local drumming and dance, and visits to interesting places and events.
